Short Bio & Research Interests

Prof. Dov Dori heads the Enterprise Systems Modeling Laboratory at the Technion‘s Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management. He Joined Technion in 1991, and since 2021 he has been Professor Emeritus. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Weizmann Institute of Science in 1988, M.Sc. in Operations Research from Tel Aviv University in 1981, and B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering and Management from Technion in 1976. Since 2000 he has been intermittently a Visiting Professor at MIT.

Prof. Dori’s research interests include model-based systems engineering, conceptual modeling of complex systems, systems architecture and design, software and systems engineering, and systems biology. Prof. Dori invented and developed Object-Process Methodology (OPM), which was adopted as ISO 19450 in 2015. In 2022 he co-funded OPCloud Ltd.

For his research, Prof. Dori received many distinctions and awards. He is a Life Fellow of IEEE – Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, a Fellow of INCOSE – International Council on Systems Engineering, and Fellow of IAPR – International Association for Pattern Recognition.
